We stayed here last Friday as we were going to a 25th wedding anniversary at Sketty Hall. We arrived last because of bad traffic and Richard and Merle couldn't have been more helpful. Richard even took the time to drive us to the venue.
Very comfortable and clean accommodation and the best breakfast I have ever had in a B&B. Can't recommend it highly enough. Many thanks.

Richard and Merle made us feel welcome and at home from the moment we arrived, when we were offered a very welcome cup of tea after our journey, until the moment we left when Richard and Merle stood on the steps and waved us on our way. The breakfast was stupendous. If we could have scored it higher we would! It was also superbly situated for visiting our Nephew in Sketty.

I am writing this review on behalf of my parents who stayed here for a few days in March 2013.
The guest house is located in a central, but peaceful location within easy access of the seafront, Clyne, Mumbles, Sketty, Singleton park (University) and local shops. The guest house is close to the local university - about a 5-10 min walk, so perfect for those here on business or pleasure.

The guest house is on a lovely quiet road, and there are some views towards the sea. I describe this as a hidden gem as I hadn't known about this place until I did a web search on visit swansea bay.com.

The proprietors were very welcoming and friendly and couldn't do enough for you.
The facilities in the room were excellent - tea, coffee, etc replenished daily, a comfy bed and good en-suite.

The breakfasts were also excellent - there was plenty of choice and the quality of the food was outstanding.

All in all I am very glad I picked this guest house for my parents - first class service and very friendly proprietors. I wouldn't hesitate to book here again & can highly recommend it to other visitors to Swansea.

This B and B was immaculate inside and the service provided was top class. They were extremely helpful and the breakfast was out of this world. Best place I have ever stayed. If you are visiting Swansea this is the place to stay

Chatcoombe is very convenient for Sketty Hall, Singleton Hospital & the University But it is much more. Great breakfast, nice clean room, super bathroom.
Also Merle & Richard were very welcoming & helpful. Whether it was where to go and see things, which pub to go to and the best way to get there. Nothing was too much trouble

We had the opportunity to visit Richard and Merle on two successive weekends, in connection with family events in Mumbles. Both visits were entirely successful thanks to the diligence and seriousness with which they they take their business. Every need is attended to, the room we had was spotlessly clean and comfortable in every respect, and the breakfasts were "to die for." In addition, not only are Richard and Merle most friendly and pleasant to chat with, but they seem to cater to a clientele associated with the University that make the breakfast table conversation a real pleasure. As a final comment, Richard put us on to a nearby pub for dinner -- The Woodman -- that was top-notch. We'll definitely stay at Chatcoombe on all our future visits!
